Not just fried chicken
If you are hanging around in Manchester’s popular Northern Quarter, it’s worth checking out Yard and Coop. Surrounded by an array of independent bars and restaurants, we are drawn to this place every time. It never fails to please, and it’s not just about chicken.
Located on Edge Street, Yard and Coop is not to be missed.
‘A spacious joint offering speciality fried chicken, sides & cocktails within amid funky, barnyard- chic décor. ‘
We ordered Bourbon BBQ wings to start, along with ‘amaize balls’ which were fried delights of sweetcorn with fresh chilli and coriander.
They were delish!
Other sides on the menu include beer battered Brooklyn rings, cowboy beans, or mac n cheese balls.
The main idea is you choose your choice of chicken and add a sauce.
My absolute favourite has to be the Korean sauce, which is made from soy sauce, coriander, tomato, and honey. Paired with perfectly crisp chicken and sweet potato fries, it adds an amazing dimension to ‘fried chicken’.
If you don’t even like chicken visit for the far-out slaw. Zesty oriental slaw with red cabbage, carrot, pak choi, fresh chilli and ginger. SO yummy.
Our pal ordered the ‘massive cock burger’ which turned a few heads as it arrived at the table.
A full buttermilk fried chicken breast, battered chorizo, salty battered jalapeños, lettuce, tomato, mayo and sriracha chilli sauce in a double stacked brioche bun. Topped with dill pickle and served with chips
Salads and kebabs are also available and it’s not Caesar either.
What’s great about the restaurant is the location and atmosphere. Whether its noon or night, the fabulous staff have always gone out of their way to look after us. Its affordable, and great for drinks also.
Kids eat free this Easter weekend and even have free face painting.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
